Groton joins program to increase energy efficiency
Groton — The town of Groton has joined the Clean Energy Communities Program, which helps cities and towns save energy and boost the use of renewable energy.
To join the program, municipalities must pledge to reduce their building energy use by 20 percent, get 20 percent of their electricity from renewable energy sources and take other steps to support clean energy.
Once a pledge is signed, residents and businesses that take advantage of Energize CT energy efficiency programs can help the community earn a $10,000 grant for a community-selected energy saving project.
Communities can also earn a solar photovoltaic energy system for a municipal building.
To find out more, residents and businesses may visit EnergizeCT.com or call 877-WISE-USE.
